LEGO Robotics Workshop, July 22-26
Jul 22 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm

For its seventh summer at the OPL, in partnership with the U.S. Air Force Laboratory in Rome, the Lego Robotics Workshop returns July 22-26 for an intensive week of designing and building robots to do tasks that could improve society and the quality of life. Registered students  will build electronically controlled robots with Legos and power packs under the supervision of Ralph Kohler, Jr., and Tandy Paugh from the U.S. Air Force’s Rome lab.

Lego robotics is being promoted by the U.S. Air Force nationwide to encourage young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It has led to the creation of several First Lego League teams in the Oneida area, including the OPL-sponsored team, GeneWorkx Oughtamation.

First Lego League Robotics Workshop, July 22-26
Jul 22 @ 9:30 am – 3:00 pm


Back for its seventh year, the robotics workshop led by U.S. Air Force Lab specialists Ralph Kohler and Tandi Paugh is for students who have completed fifth grade. They will program and manipulate tabletop robots made of Legos and programmable controls to tackle special tasks. Pre-registration at the Oneida Library desk is required (by phone, call 315-363-3050).
